BBEC Swing Band

Hello everybody,
Beth here to tell you all about BBEC's Swing Band which performed at Mr Morris' assemblies during open evening. Swing Band is organised by woodwind teacher Mrs Williams. We practice at Thursday lunch times and very often get asked to perform at events inside and outside school, such as open evening. At present, Swing Band consists of: 4 saxophones, 3 trumpets, 2 guitarists, a trombone, a pianist and a drummer.
Now that you know a little more about us I guess I'd better tell you about our most recent performance - open evening. For the performance, we had to choose three pieces to play whilst parents and children were arriving, and so, at a previous rehearsal we decided to play through the pieces we already knew and then took a vote. So, the pieces chosen were: "Brain Sprain"; "Kiss the Girl"( due to the request of Mr Grindrod) and "Gimme Some Lovin'". And I am proud to announce that at both the assemblies we received a massive round of applause.
I really enjoyed performing at open evening and hope there are many more performances to come. To keep up to date watch this space!
